In the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals, Chelsea faced Sheffield United and it was not an easy match for the Blues. In the 11th minute of the match, the threat under the goal of the Blues was created by the guests.
The ball was claimed by Kepa Arrizabalaga after a corner kick by Oliver Norwood and a headshot. In the 21st minute, we already had a situation on the other side of the pitch. Benjamin Chilwell struck from outside the penalty area and Norwood headed it into his own goal.
In a convenient situation, Christian Pulisic tried to overpass the rivals’ goalkeeper at the end of the first half but failed. Immediately after the break, it seemed that this time there must be a goal.
Pulisic, who played around three rivals and rushed at the goal, played the leading role again. However, he hit from an acute angle and his shot was defended.
In the 68th minute, the visitors had the best opportunity to equalize. John Lundstram centered the ball and David McGoldrick shot from close range with his head and narrowly missed.
A minute later Arrizabalaga had to defend a shot from the corner of the penalty area by Oliver McBurnie. In the last, Hakim Ziyech increased the score to 2-0, who took advantage of a good pass by Chilwell.
The final part of the match lacked dangerous situations. Chelsea grabbed the victory and found themselves in the best four of the FA Cup among teams such as Manchester City and Southampton FC.
